Help me make my friends laugh... in less than 24 hours.

In about 24 hours I will be picking up old friends from the airport and taking them to a rented apartment in the city, near where I live. They will be tired and jet-lagged so I wanted to make their first day as hassle-free and pleasant as possible. At the same time, they have a goofy sense of humor and I would love to play a prank on them. Can you help me make them laugh?

Additional info: my friends are from the US, a family of four (two kids 8 and 4 years old) coming to my city (in Europe) for a few weeks in the summer, same as last year. They have stayed in the same apartment last year and have many friends in the city, but most of our shared friends are out of town this week which is why I'll be the one to take them to the apartment and give them the keys. The plan is for me to pick them up and drive them to the apt and leave them to decompress/shower/etc. We haven't seen each other since last year. They are super excited to be here. They have been working hard at learning our local language but it's a difficult one and we often joke about how hard it is to learn.
Also, they are thrilled to have the same apartment as last year that they loved. It's a two-level apt if that helps.
I have stocked the fridge, so that they don't have to start the day with a grocery run. They are arriving at around 10 am local time.
I would love to surprise them by having people they know wait for us inside the apartment but unfortunately the people they are closest with will be out of town. But if I could, this is the kind of prank I had in mind, not anything that would stress them out (too much).
Can you help me out?
Bonus points if you have any other advice about how to make their first day more fun!
Anything I can hide inside the apt that would be nice to discover in a day or two?
